Antonio Cromartie has played for four NFL teams over the course of decade-long career.
That’s a decent number of squads for which the cornerback has suited up.
But it’s nothing – and this bears many repetitions: it’s NOTHING! – compared to the number of diapers Cromartie has changed over the years.
And he’s about to head back to the store for a new contingent of boxes.
On Monday, Cromartie and his wife announced that they’re expecting their sixth child together as a couple.
Which is a lot. And which is definitely a cause for celebration.
But it also doesn’t even begin to tell the story of Antonio Cromartie and his sperm… because this upcoming baby will mark the free agent’s 14th child overall.
That is not a typo. Antonio Cromartie has 13 kids and now another on the way.
Antonio and his wife, Terricka, welcomed twins last year, despite Cromartie supposedly having undergone a vasectomy in 2011.
They have three girls and two boys at home.
Now, via a very cute Instagram photo and caption, Terricka has confirmed that another baby is due before the year is over.
“In the up and coming CROMARTIE DRAFT of 2017, with the 6th OverAll Pick. Will the Cromartie’s Draft a Boy or a Girl,” Terricka captioned a photo of her baby bump with a pink and blue foot painted on it.
“J6 coming soon #6months #25weeks #boyorgirl #3girls2boys #sexunknown #j6.”
We’d say this pair should spend less time coming up with hashtags and more time finding a reliable birth control method, but hey.
Who are we to judge?!?
According to TMZ, Terricka is 25 weeks pregnant.
This means she is due some time in September.
To be clear, Cromartie himself has “only” fathered 13 kids; 8 in previous relationships, two with Terricka, then the the twins and now this next one on the way.
But Terricka came into this marriage with a child of her own and, to Cromartie’s credit, sources say he’s a very active stepfather.
Hence the number 14. He’s responsible in life for a total of 14 children.
Terricka talked to Us Weekly last year about how she felt upon learning she was pregnant, considering she thought this was physically impossible after her husband got his goods snipped.
“Originally, he was like, ‘Oh, s—t! Are you serious? How did this happen?’ It was shocking news for the both of us,” she told the tabloid, adding:
“I didn’t even tell Antonio right away because I didn’t think it was possible. I was going back and forth in my head how it could even happen.
“In my head we were good to go, we were having free sex! I just really thought that his procedure was the best protection you could have at this point.”
According to the National Institutes of Health, only 15 to 20 out of 10,000 couples will experience a pregnancy after a vasectomy, making the procedure far more effective than using condoms or birth-control pills.
But it isn’t perfect.
The Cromarties found this out for themselves last year.
So we can understand how they accidentally procreated and ended up with their twins.
As for why they went ahead and had unprotected sex again, well aware that the procedure didn’t make Cromartie fertile?
Just like a player signing with the New York Jets, as Cromartie has actually done on two occasions, we’ll never fully comprehend that decision.
